COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Epic by name, epic by nature, this Farmhouse Ale is a transcontinental fusion of Belgium’s eclectic beer culture and the feisty hops of North America brought to life with the aid of West Country artisanal brewing wizardry and judicious use of the US-grown Sorachi Ace hop. On the nose, the hops deliver a big splash of tropical fruit, followed by ripples of well-seasoned spiciness spreading outwards. In the mouth a tangy, bittersweet fruitiness holds sway, while tangerine oranges tap dance their way across the tongue in the finish.

Quack-Duck (8701) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2015
bottle from M&S Exeter. Hazy pale yellow, tall white head. Wild nose. Light-bodied, malty start, grainy touch and a citrusy-fruity background, also a yeasty funkyness present. Delicious and exciting.

sebletitje (7913) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2015
Draft sample @ Oersoep Bierfest 2015, Nijmegen. Fin orangé, col épais blanc-cassé. Arôme offre un agréable bouquet marquant bien son style de saison, retrouve un bouquet indiquant quasi une présence de barrique et le tout ponctué par un fruité intense pour le style mais tout en modération. Palais garde un léger profil rustique de saison mais tout en gardant une signature type de Wild Beer. Pointe surette sur la fin mais agrémentée d’un excellent fruité tropical rappelant la mangue.

77ships (5561) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2015
Sampled draft @ Oersoep Craft Beer Festival 2015. Hazy orange, HUGE, HUGE creamy off-white head. Nose is exotic fruits, peach, strong fruit, blue cheese. Taste is the Sorachi Ace blue cheese, lots of it, mixed with peach, exotic fruit, light yoghurt, creamy, bread, faint floral in the back. Creamy body. My kind of beer. Pretty epic indeed.

TheKernOwl (24) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
- Cloudy, as WB like to make ‘em. - Nose: lemon zest, some spice – very much like Celis White – and a splash of seawater. - Body: v light. - Longish, dry finish – with a dash of savoury, dried coconut. Lemon/seawater tang returns, too - Dry, delicately balanced. Thought it would have more brett, for some reason.
